Find out what your hotel provides

If however you want to use your products, then pour some of them in small vials or containers in order to save space.


Make a list

In order to not be stuffed with a huge amount of clothes that you will not even wear, make a list of the clothing that you will need for each day of the break. You will be surprised how much less you actually need.


Choose the right suitcase

There is no need to fold your clothes many times, for so they actually take up more space. Position your clothing in the center of the case.


Aside place the smaller things such as lingerie, jewelry and accessories.


And most importantly smile and have a nice holiday!
